GNOME 3 Gnomebuntu - 15.10

I have an Intel NUC i3 6th gen and a 4k monitor with 32GB of ram. If I type the command xrandr after doing

"xrandr -s 4096x2160"

Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 4096 x 2160, maximum 32767 x 32767
DP1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
HDMI1 connected primary 4096x2160+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 1600mm x 900mm
   1920x1080     60.00 +  59.94    30.00    24.00    29.97    23.98  
   4096x2160     24.00*   23.98

   1280x720      60.00    59.94

   720x480       60.00    59.94  
   640x480       60.00    59.94  
   720x400       70.08  
HDMI2 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
VIRTUAL1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

I want to make this change permanent so I did the following -

create .xprofile with touch xprofile

run -

cvt 4096 2160 60

# 4096x2160 59.98 Hz (CVT) hsync: 134.18 kHz; pclk: 760.00 MHz
Modeline "4096x2160_60.00"  760.00  4096 4432 4880 5664  2160 2163 2173 2237 -hsync +vsync

I then added the following to my .xprofile

xrandr --newmode "4096x2160_60.00"  760.00  4096 4432 4880 5664  2160 2163 2173 2237 -hsync +vsync

xrandr --addmode VGA1 "4096x2160_60.00"

xrandr -s "4096x2160_60.00"

If I log out and log back in, I am kicked back out to the login screen. I then have to drop to terminal, delete .xprofile, and then return to the GUI. What am I doing wrong here? I can do the above commands by hand and it works fine. My current resolution after doing this by hand is 4096x2160. My monitor is incorrectly identified. It is a 50inch and not a 70inch. Am I missing something simple?

My current resolution.

  • commands look good, could be a problem with incompatible hardware. What is in .xprofile ? post or pastebin the contents. To make xrandr changes stay , run a script at login or edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf - askubuntu.com/questions/186288/… – Panther Jan 9 '16 at 13:56
